Born on 2nd November, 1973, in New Delhi/India with a first class degree fine arts from the prestigious College of Arts,I am a self-taught photographer and street photography is a passion that I live like a discipline. Although I started shooting as a wild life photographer for two years,I switched on to street in 2001, it instantly became my passion and my first nature.
To me street photography is a journey and I travel everyday, I am learning and unlearning everyday, I thrive to improve everyday. Life in general, which is so unexpected, I try to be as honest through my lens as I can. I try to synthesize between human elements and the environment & my main focus is how to make ordinary moments look extraordinary.
I think everyone of us should get involved with photography, because it gives more than one can ever imagine. In 2011, APF(artphotofeature.com), was formed. APF is born from an education imperative, it’s an evolving magazine where we recognise fresh talent. The intent is to provide a platform for emerging photographers, artists and designers to showcase their works, works that are not necessarily commercial, to create opportunities and open new doors. The subjects explored are broad, in terms of concepts, styles and techniques. I want to explore the limits and possibilities.
I’m a Leica Ambassador, first ever Indian in the history of Leica, and conducting workshops as a Leica Mentor in Leica Akademie, with various publications on Leica blog. Before Leica I was an official Fuji X photographer, member of APF collective & thestreetcollective.
Currently I am doing workshops globally, including Miami street photography festival, Miami street photography festival, Italian street photography festival, San Francisco street photography festival, London street photography festival, Xposure photography festival Sharjah, SIPA and India photo festival. I am also in the leading judging panel of all these festivals. I have been awarded twice in a row at the Xposure photo festival by His Highness Sheikh Sultan Bin Ahmed Al Qasimi for excellence. I’ve also been giving lectures and conducting workshops in leading colleges of India for past 12 years. My works and stories have been published on various prestigious magazines, newspapers & blogs all over the world including National Geographic, NYT, The Guardian U.K.
I’ve been a part of various collective exhibitions in London, New York, Miami, Vietnam, Tel Aviv & India. firstname.lastname@example.org
